HDMI input failure

I finally decided to upgrade my input to HDMI once my cable company got a new box that had HDMI out. When I hooked up the TV the HDMI input gave me only a black screen then after plugging it in and out a few times gave me a green screen. I know the box and cable work since I hooked up another TV and it worked fine. I called JVC and went through the whole HDMI reset without any luck. They said I need to get this serviced, but I really don't want to pay for this for a TV 3 yrs old, especially since it obviously never worked from the beginning (I just never used the HDMI input until today). How much would this cost me (or is there something I could replace or check myself for less money?) I have a 57 inch Toshiba rear projection HD with a HDCP compliant DVIinput. For over a year now I have been watching HD from my HD DVDthrough a HDMI/DVI cable connected directly between the HD DVD and thetelevision, with no problems. After I bought a Vudu Internet receiver, I connected boththe Vudu and the HD DVD to my Onkyo 506 receiver (HDMI passthrough)withHDMI cables, and the receiver to the television with the HDMI/DVIcable. I was able to play the HD DVD successfully with this setup.However, when I tried to play the Vudu, I got the noncompliance notice-- and no picture. Moreover, I now get no picture when trying to viewany HDCP source, including the HD DVD, regardless whether it'sconnected through the receiver or directly to the television, as itused to be. It is as if the VUDU "blew out" my television's HDCP"handshake."

    The first half of that post should not be there. The Post should start with: "I have the 57 inch Toshiba...."

  • pmalter0 Jan 20, 2009

    Moreover, my Toshiba model is a 57H83 .

  • pmalter0 Jan 21, 2009

    The television is four years old, and I don't think there are any new software issuences. I am also quite sure that it is not the cables-- I can play a non-HDCP HD DVD successfully over the same cables now(hence, it is not the DVD either). A number of people have had a similar problems on this website with their JVC rear projection televisions; and in every case it was the television and not the cables. Similarly a number of people on the VUDU forum have had this problem -- and in every case it was not the cables.

  • pmalter0 Jan 21, 2009

    As I said in my first comment, that part of my post should not be there. This is not an issue involving my cable box-- that post belonged to somebody else. My problems started with the VUDU (I really think that the VUDU messed up my television's HDCP handshake; the VUDU support can figure it out either).

  • pmalter0 Jan 21, 2009

    Everything worked fine through my Onkyo's HDMI inputs/output initially. I was able to play HD DVD movies and select a HDX movie to be downloaded on my VUDU. When I went to play that movie I received a HDCP noncompliance notice and then a blank screen( afterward I had a blank screen on all HDCP HD DVD discs as well). Nothing changed when I took my Onkyo out of the circuit.

  • pmalter0 Jan 21, 2009

    I am going to do the repair myself, I just hope that the DVI circuit board is easily accessible and has the components labeled or marked. Can anyone tell me if it is. Thanks

  • pmalter0 Jan 27, 2009

    I've got a couple of problems: 1) I can't find C 268; the only
    capacitors near P202 are in the 800s; do we have the right model
    --57H83 ? 2) how do I access the television's motherboard; I could get
    the DVI module out by just taking off the rear small access screen, but
    to put it back in I will need to slide out the whole motherboard -- and
    it doesn't want to slide out the back -- help. Also, could you possibly
    e-mail me or fax me that Toshiba bulletin (I could probably get Toshiba
    to provide me a new DVI if I had the bulletin)? Thanks.


  • pmalter0 Jan 27, 2009

    Bigger problem -- the DVI circuit board is not accessible for replacing the capacitor. The circuit board is in a metal housing that is soldered to the circuit board in at least a dozen places -- replacing the capacitor doesn't look reasonable now. I guess I have to buy (or get Toshiba to replace) a new DVI module. I still need to find out how to access the motherboard.

CLICK HERE to order a Service Manual for $6.50 (half the normal price)

Your Problem is definately in the DVI board - however specialized testing equipment is required to troubleshoot and replace faulty components on the board (unless there is obvious physical damage).

Your best approach is to either remove the board, and take it to a repair shop to save labor of disassembling the unit - or remove/replace the board altogether.

Without seeing a service manual, or the actual unit, this is as far as we can go here.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

You probably need to set up the Onkyo 506 HDMI output properties.

First connect the Onkyo to TV alone, to test it.
If it does not work, try a different HDMI input on TV, and if you have one , test a replacement HDMI cable.

This to ensure that there is no connection problem.

Then you perform the HDMI setup explained at page 39 on user manual below:

    I am an authorized Toshiba service center and I did find a bulliten that is related to your problem.Remove the DVI input module and open it up, and locate C268. It is a small surface mount capacitor located near P202 which is one of the connectors.Replace it with a 100k ohm surface mount resistor.Toshiba part # 24011104.Good luck!!

Have you tried with different cables and also check current software for the TV.
Also did you try with another DVD to make sure since the symptom did not sound like the disc had an error.

Picture in picture operation & connection to dvd player


Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.

Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.

If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.

To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.

The HDMI doesn't work properly


HI

The resolution is only set by the sending unit, in your case the cable box. You need to change this to at least 720P something the your TV can handle.

Now once you have down this, to try and solve your HDMI problem I suggest you do the following.

Switch-off your cable box and the TV set, unhook the HDMI cable.

Now reinsert it carefully to make sure it connects properly on both sides.

Now first switch on your TV and set the input to Video 6 ( your HDMI channel )

Now wait for 30 secs. Switching on your cable box.

Do not press anything and check if your picture now stays on without shut-down.

if the menu and other startup screens on the cable box is not flickering, but the normal picture you might have a HDMI conflict with your TV set.

O, you cannot change the input types.

Hope this helps!

I just purchased a Sherwood RD 6513 reciever, I'm trying to connect a hd cable box (motorola dch 3200), dvd player (sony dvp ns710h) and a rca hd tv (l32hd41). I connected hdmi cords from both components...


Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you. I f you are going to hook up your cable box - motorola to the sherwood receiver, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the motorola cable box, there is only 1 hdmi output there, then connect the other end to the sherwood receiver on the hdmi input, then connect another hdmi cable to the hdmi output and the other end goes to your rca hd tv.

for the sony dvp, you have only one hdmi out, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the sony dvp if u have another spare. connect it to the hdmi input of the sherwood receiver. there is only 1 hdmi output at the sherwood, so u need to use a component cable to be connected at the back of the sherwood receiver component output then the other end goes to the component input of the hd tv.

if you dont have anymore hdmi cable to hook up your sony dvp, u can use component cable, the connection will goes like this, connect a component cable on the output of the sony dvp and the other end goes to the sherwood component input then connect another component cable to the component output of the sherwood and the other end goes to the rca hd tv on the component input.

I hope this will solve your concern, if you have any question, u can get in touch..

My HDMI set top box display reads "no input signal" but everything appears connected. I have no picture or sound. Cannot access any tv stations.


Make sure TV is set to HDMI channel.

Try a different HDMI port on back of TV.

Reset the cable/sat box and reset the TV by powering off both and unplugging them for the wall outlet for 30 seconds. Turn cable/sat box on first, and then TV after 30 secs.

If this fails, check the TV manufacturer's website to see if they have any software upgrades that will resolve the HDMI issue.

HDMI input failure


Hey guys, had the same problem. Found this solution on the web. Worked for me.

JVC HDMI Port Fix

Turn the TV on, and enter the Service Menu. Select 2 for Self Check. Then turn the TV off, and after the fan turns off, unplug the power cord. Reconnect the power cord, turn the TV on, and the HDMI port is reenabled.


Here’s how to get to Service Menu:

Before entering the SERVICE MENU, confirm that the setting
of TV/CATV SW of the REMOTE CONTROL UNIT is at the
"TV" side and the setting of VCR/DVD SW of the REMOTE
CONTROL UNIT is at the "VCR" side. If the switches have not
been properly set, you cannot enter the SERVICE MENU.
1) Press [SLEEP TIMER] key and while the indication of
SLEEP TIMER 0 MIN is being displayed, press
[DISPLAY] key and [VIDEO STATUS] key (Fig.2)
simultaneously.
2) The SERVICE MENU screen of Fig.1 is displayed.
3) Verify what to set in the SERVICE MENU, and set
whatever is necessary (Fig.1).
Refer to the SERVICE ADJUSTMENT for setting.
4) Press the [BACK] key to return the SERVICE MENU.


This should work.

HDMI connection problem


On your TV set remote are you selecting the proper input; for example when you have different devices connected to the back of your tv set, dvd player, vcr, cable box etc; you have to tell the tv which device you want to use by selecting the right one on your tv remove input selection. Hope this was any help.

Go into the service menu using the remote (hit the sleep timer, then video status and display at the same time), go into the status menu #2, then power off the tv. This will reset the HDMI port. If your sitll experiencing the issue, probably a dead board.
